    Buttonbox

    Hi everyone. Just to not mess up things, i started this thread, so we can talk about Xbox One compatible buttonboxes here.

    Do you have a buttonbox ?
    Pros and cons ?
    Recommendation ?

    I have ordered an SBB2 buttonbox from simracinghardware. It has 12 buttons and two rotary encoders with pushfunction, which is 18 functions overall. I asked if they could deliver it with all black pushbuttons and they could without extra cost. So now i just have to wait for it to be built and send my way

    I've mapped a USB Keyboard as a button box but the info does not appear to save correctly. For example if the "A" button was set to Move Seat UP, the next time I turn on the console on it will be a different function, ie: Brake Bias Increase. All functions save however their location on the board does not. Anyone else?

    UPDATE: I read on another thread what buttons could and could not be mapped. I think my issue is that I may have mapped a function to "Number Lock" and that could be causing my issues. When I get home from work I'm going to reassign buttons and give it another try.

    Its Magic, But it Boxes will only work if they are Encoded like a USB Keyboard...so before you spend $100 on a Snazzy Button box, make sure its PS4 or Xbox compatible. Also any DIY Keyboard Encoder Button boxes will work.
